Delta announced they would be launching new non-stop service between Boston and several new cities including Austin, Texas; Kansas City, Mo.; Jacksonville, Fla.; Buffalo, N.Y.; and Norfolk, Va, as part of their plan to continue expanding in Boston.
Delta customers in Greater Boston will have more flights and new destinations this summer as the airline adds new nonstop service to Austin, Texas; Kansas City, Mo.*; Jacksonville, Fla.*; Buffalo, N.Y.*; and Norfolk, Va.*; – a new nonstop destination for Bostonians – as well as a second daily flight to Nashville, Tenn.*, from Boston Logan International Airport beginning Sept. 10.
On Dec. 21, Delta will expand weekend West Palm Beach, Fla., and Fort Myers, Fla., flights to daily, as well as increase weekend Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., flights to twice daily. Delta will also continue to support strong holiday travel demand with nonstop flights to popular Caribbean destinations including Montego Bay, Jamaica; Punta Cana, Dominican Republic; St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; and Nassau, Bahamas; beginning Dec. 21.
Delta offers the most first class seats of any airline from Boston, and by this fall will operate more than 100 peak day departures to 32 destinations. The airline’s rapid growth includes 12 new destinations since November 2016.
These new flights are available for sale on Delta.com, including using SkyMiles. If you are looking for a way to earn even more miles, consider The Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card, Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express or The Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card.
Delta is really trying to increase their Boston service, and this latest announcement doesn’t come as a surprise to me, as they’ve added several new routes last year. As JetBlue has a hub in Boston, Delta is really trying to win over some marketshare, and these new routes will help with that.
